Rethinking Certainty and Fallibility

In another of our TEDx Talk re-takes leading up to TEDx Manitoba 2012, we re-present a popular presentation from outside the province at TED proper.

Earlier this year at TED2011, journalist and author Kathryn Schulz made “a compelling case for not just admitting but embracing our fallibility” as human beings, based on her book, “Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error.”

And how might Schulz’s study of ‘wrongology,’ as she jokingly call it, translate into the (what)if √ó formula of TEDx Manitoba 2012? We might be demonstrating our own fallibility here, but it might look like this:

(standardized testing) if x
x=right answers can be as bad as wrong ones

Dare to rethink and be different at TEDx Manitoba 2012, and see whether the right path has you starting off on the wrong foot.

Have your own reformulation? We’d love to hear about it in the comments.
